Out to 600, .223 Rem. 800-1000 is a different game.
Easy one for me....6BR for 600 yard and 284 for 1,000 yard matches
Bra/dasher/brx will all get it done. I think it’s the best bang for the buck in terms of good ballistics, top notch accuracy potential and relatively cheap to load with low recoil.
.223 with 75 grain Amax for 600, .308 with 185 Berger Juggernaut for 1000.
50% of us shoot a 308...
I use a .284 for 600. For 1000, I use a .284.
But which one is your favorite?
If you primarily shoot at a range where the wind is almost always huffing and puffing, a larger cartridge would be preferable to a smaller one, no matter the distance.. However, if you shoot at a range where the wind is primarily "easy going", a very accurate 6mm or 6.5 may take the prize quite often. Times are such now that 597-600s are the NORM at 600 yards and having a rifle capable of attaining a HIGH "X" count has a distinct advantage. At 1000 yards, even under "relatively light" winds, a larger cartridge, as long as it's accurate, will "generally" beat out the smaller ones. Get winds from 10m.p.h. on up at 1000 and you REALLY are at a great disadvantage with smaller cartridges. If you want to be at the pinnacle of 1000 yard cartridges, a 7 S.A.U.M IMP., shooting the 195 Bergers simply can not be matched! At 600 yards, under "normal" conditions, it would be extremely difficult to beat a .260A.I. or a 6.5 x 284>>>having said that, a 6 Dasher will certainly hold it's own and take home the gold enough of the time to make happy the shooter!
Is that a wildcat based on the Creedmore?
How does it shoot?
The 6.5 Creedmoor!!! It just gets the job done. I have switched numerous times looking for that little extra edge and I always find myself going back to the 6.5 Creedmoor.
Let the haters begin.
Hello Darrin! You won't get any argument from me! The 6.5 x 47, 6.5 Creedmoor and the .260 are so close in performance to each other that for all practical purposes, they are identical.. Oh and by the way, I have never shot a 6.5 Creed!
No matter what caliber, from 6mm-7mm ballistics are so close anymore. Learn how to read the wind! If you can read wind better than the rest you can win with a sling shot and a rock!
Gotta be a typo.... ain’t no one here hating on a Creedmoor.... ain’t no one! That thing is the cats ass!!
There's always someone out there waiting to bash a Creedmoor. I can't say enough about that little round, it has always done me really good ... on paper. I kill a lot of paper every week.
A 6 cruudmoor all the way!!!
I'm with Al, I shoot a .308 Winmoor too.
Dean it’s Winmore...
I'd be happy with Winsome or just Winafew anymore Otis. Competition is a little stiffer than it use to be.
